It is so fun to eat, especially when you make an effort to eat healthy. It is never too late to change eating habits. Instead of deep fry fish, opt for a healthier version like this, salmon and cod sautéed (with tons of chopped garlic) in my basting olive oil. It tastes amazing and is so good for us all!
